Idyllwild Theatre presents Shakespeare Confused

Idyllwild Theatre presents


Six young and overconfident actors are travelling through Elizabethan England, desperate to secure a patron before being declared "vagabonds and layabouts".

With some scenes filched in a London pub from some writer bloke they are sure they will be a success. O, the drama...O, the upstaging...O, the unusual use of props.

Shakespeare Confused is presented by Idyllwild Theatre, a new company based in Wellington. This first production will be at Bats Theatre as part of the 2003 Fringe Festival.

Shakespeare Confused features Jocelyn Christian, Michael Charlton-Jones, Shane Bellamy-Mannell, James Ordish, Sam Shore and David White. It was written and is directed by Stuart Curtis.
